Abstract: In this study, the partially PPVA and SGO membrane was prepared which was characterized by chemical, structural and thermal properties. Evaluated properties showed good proton conductivity(PC), Ion exchange capacity(IEC)and higher water uptake. The prepared membrane was employed in dual chamber microbial fuel cell (MFC). By calculating the production voltage and the reduction rate of COD the performance of MFC was studied where the results showed power density of 561.1 mW/m2 and COD removal of 78.8% which implies its application in an electrochemical device.
